- Sunrise Resources has reported a very encouraging start to exploration at the Garfield Project in Nevada with the identification of significant bedrock copper-gold mineralisation in trenching there.

"We have a permit to undertake further trenching and this will be scheduled to fit in with other work programmes in Nevada this summer," said executive chairman Patrick Cheetham in a statement.

HIGHLIGHTS: · Two trenches excavated in June 2016 tested beneath mineralised surface samples.

· Trench 1 (26m long) sampling results: 22m grading 0.33% copper, including: 2 metres grading 2.18% copper and 0.48 g/t gold from 16m-18m; 2 metres grading 1.2 g/t gold and 0.07% copper from 8m-10m.

· Trench 2 did not reach bedrock and was not sampled.
